Description Программа Prices What’s included Schedule Highlights Meeting point Photos Reviews

Our journey will show you that Saint-Petersburgh subway is more than public transportation system. We will visit the most beautiful and unusual stations, which are truly called "underground palaces".

I will explain you the context of the heroic times of the russian people, where the inspiration for the masterpieces was taken. You will see the beatiful interiors, recognise the engineering innovations and feel yourself as ordinary citizen at the same time. Because we will do the same as every passenger do: buying tokens and going down by an escalator, taking trains and changing lines. At last we will be a little bit thrilled by the stories of crashes and accidents.

We will start at the second deepest subway station in the world. I will explain you why our metro is the most Lenin's place in Russia. You will see the first underground monument in the world and find hidden image of Joseph Stalin. But the main pearl of our trip will be a station included in the list of the 12 world's most beautiful metro stations by "The Guardian".

I hope, that after this excursion you will find that at least "The Guardian" could honor the half of its list by our subway stations. And also I hope that you will get better understanding of russian people and russian life.
